EAEA Country Reports 2019 published

For the sixth year in a row EAEA presents its country reports – a civil society view of adult education in Europe. These country reports are based on surveys filled in by our members from 30 different European countries, helping to give a voice to civil society organisations and grass roots movements in adult education on a European stage.

This is the last edition that will take this format, as, from now on, we will be presenting the country reports on a new database – making it even easier to compare situations year by year, and country by country, as well as providing an opportunity for researching policy relating to specific areas – ‘Upskilling Pathways’ for example.

The country reports provide a means for:

  • Informing colleagues and adult education stakeholders across Europe with developments and recommendations for your country
  • Comparison between your situation and that of other countries or regions in Europe over the past six years
  • Provide inspiration on innovative practices for colleagues and policy makers

The country specific information on adult education policy could act as a tool for influencing the European Semester, the cycle of yearly economic and structural policy coordination from the European Commission.

Survey reveals that European ALE organisations struggle with access to EU funding opportunities

In a recent survey conducted across adult learning and education (ALE) organisations in Europe in the framework of the Path2EU4AE project, a concerning revelation has emerged: many organisations lack crucial information about various European Union funding programmes available to them. While the Erasmus+ programme is widely known and used in the sector, other funding programmes such as CERV (Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values) and Creative Europe are still largely unknown to many organisations.

Stop taxing the right to adult learning and education!

The national and regional interpretations of the European Union's VAT Directive lead to financial uncertainties and problems for many ALE organisations in Europe. We demand a revision of the VAT Directive to exempt non-formal and non-commercial adult learning and education from VAT.
